Mildren died 9 APR 1902 in Brown Twp., Paulding Co., OH, at age 53. Paulding Co., OH, probate records reveal that on 9 May 1898, she was judged insane, and put in the custody of her son, Grant. On 13 Jun 1898, she was returned to court and found worse. Judge thereby ordered her to make application to the Toledo State Hospital. On 21 Jun 1898, her application was approved. The records do not state whether she actually went, and if so, for how long, because she appears in the 1900 Paulding Co., OH census and her death record says that she died in Paulding Co., OH. At that time her twin minor sons, Earl and Cliffe, age 16 were put under the guardingship of JA Weible, a neighbor, until they turned 21 in 1906.
